BRAY WOMAN Laura Tobin raised €1,600 for the Ir­ish Heart Foun­da­tion, by hold­ing fundrais­ing events to mark her 30th birth­day.

Money is still com­ing in, and Laura is very grate­ful to ev­ery­one for their gen­eros­ity and help.

Sadly, Laura’s brother Paul died sud­denly last July from a heart-re­lated con­di­tion. He was aged just 35.

Laura wanted to do some­thing in his honour and to raise money for a good cause.

So last Satur­day, she was the guest of honour at a ta­ble quiz in the fish­er­man’s club in Bray, and ear­lier on she hosted a foot­ball match at the Peo­ple’s park.

Friends, fam­ily, neigh­bours from Kil­bride Grove, the Gar­den County foot­ball club and oth­ers all took part in the fun events.

The quiz was great fun, with fam­ily friend Marc Nolan tak­ing on the roll of quiz-mas­ter.

When two teams fin­ished neck-and-neck, the only think for it was to force them into a dance­off for the ti­tle.

Laura was joined by her par­ents Breda and Paddy, her brother Alan, and the late Paul’s girl­friend Deb­o­rah, as well as a host of rel­a­tives and friends.

Ev­ery­one had a bril­liant time, although Paul was very much missed on the night.

There was a fun raf­fle with prizes kindly do­nated by re­tail­ers and busi­nesses from all over Bray.
